1988 Norseman 400 Cruiser



SV Shameless 1988 Norseman 400

The Gary Grant designed Norseman 400 is the roomiest 40 footer we’ve ever been aboard. She has 6’6” head room down below in a spacious bright salon, well-appointed galley, two comfortable staterooms and tremendous storage. Her interior is finished in teak with generous use of solid wood in louvered locker doors and trim. Her cabin sole is teak and holly and the removable headliner is white laminate with teak trim. Many solid handholds and laminated teak fiddles provide safety and comfort when moving about the vessel. Reading LED spot lights are located throughout and teak framed Alpenglow red/white LED lights are surface mounted in each space on the overhead.

She features excellent sailing performance, a very low-maintenance exterior, and her construction, systems and equipment are all of the highest quality. Shameless is a turnkey blue water cruising yacht that is safe and comfortable. She had a complete refit in 2014-2015 with the best of everything and is exceptionally maintained. Her fiberglass decks are watertight, and the interior teak woodwork is free of water and battery acid damage. Her sails and canvas are in like-new condition. Included in the sale are all the extras and spares you need on a cruising yacht. (See full list below.) Her current slip in a gated marina is transferable to the new owners.  She is ready right now to take you wherever you want to go – whether it’s cruising the Sea of Cortez or setting sail for the Panama Canal, or the South Pacific and beyond – in comfort, safety, and style.
